Provide long term-term outreach programs striving to educate, enrich and train the lives of at-risk youth by improving their skills while they learn to appreciate the value of helping and respecting others. What sets us apart from other sport programs are the moral, ethical and Christ centered values youth will hear and see from our staff at every program. It is our desire to impact the lives of youth with our innovative style of teaching. The goal is to change lives forever so they can have a future that’s filled with promise so they can conquer the challenges of life. By giving them a solid foundation these young men and women will grow into responsible citizens.
Christian Sports International (CSI) is a faith-motivated sports and educational program working with at-risk youth. We see a need for youth to learn how to achieve their highest potential in all areas of life no matter what obstacles they may have. It is our goal to accomplish this by being directly involved in the lives of these kids by taking our sports and mentoring program into their neighborhoods.
CSI will accomplish these objectives by holding either two or three sessions a week for two hours each. Roll will be taken at each program session and a biblical topic will be discussed with the youth. Change can be measured in behavior, listening, and respect for those around them. CSI staff and volunteers will take time to mentor the youth on any issue they may be facing.
The program will take place September to May two or three days a week. Then we will hold our annual four day program in June and begin our 8 week summer program in these same locations.
The proposed activities will impact the designed community by seeing children not wanting to be involved in drugs, sex, alcohol, fighting and seeing school problems decrease. Children will be noticed that change is taking place in their lives and people of the community will see that change. We want to see children’s lives changed so they can grow into responsible young men and women in their families and communities. Thus creating change one life at a time.
